Good News from Nanuk of the Great White North

I called the arthritis doc yesterday to get the rest of my test results back....GOOD NEWS!!

All of the tests for connective tissue diseases and serious forms of arthritis came back NEGATIVE! Merry Christmas to me!

I do have a vitamin D deficiency, and am still anemic, so I have to follow up with my PCP on that. Big whoop, I say!

SO. It's more than likely the reactive arthritis, and by the time I get weaned back down to my maintenance dose of prednisone for the MG, all of the symptoms should be gone. : ) I have to go back in 6-8 weeks to check my vitamin D levels, sooner if I have any problems.

Now we are so happy we do the dance of joy! Dy-dy-dy-dy da-da-dy-dy-dy-dy! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Oh yeah, and we are BURIED in snow up here. We have over 40 inches on the ground, and are supposed to have more coming today, but it's stopped for now. Just call me Nanuk!

Have a wonderful, blessed Christmas. PLEASE remember that we are celebrating Jesus, that HE is our perfect Gift.

Merry Christmas!!

Thankfully last nights report of 5-10 was wrong. It's suppose to heat up Sat. and melt a bunch but then freeze Sunday. Gah! I wonder if we should but some snow shoes?
